Bald Hill Lookout

Bald Hill is one of Illawarra, Australia's most well known and most popular lookouts situated a top the hill of that name. Not only are the views excellent, the area is also internationally known as a major hang gliding point.

It was on the beach below Bald Hill that Lawrence Hargrave, an Australian pioneer of flight, made a successful flight on 12 November 1894. A memorial cairn dedicated to him has been erected at the peak of the hill near the car park.

Bald Hill overlooks the one and only Sea Cliff Bridge which extends along the Grand Pacific Drive a 140 kilometre award winning coastal drive beginning 45 minutes south of Sydney International Airport in the Royal National Park.
